A subdomain is a web address, that is under a main, or a root domain name. An illustration is something.domain.com, where domain.com is the main domain address, while "something" is the subdomain below it. Every subdomain can have its own website and records i.e. apart from employing the domain name as a part of the whole web address, a subdomain can be totally independent and also hosted by a separate service provider. Using a subdomain can be quite handy if you'd like to have different sites which are associated in some way. For example, you could have an on-line store under the main domain plus a forum under a subdomain in order to supply means for your clients to ask questions and / or share opinions concerning your products. The benefit of using a subdomain as opposed to a subfolder is that the web sites will be separated, so you're able to update one of them or perform maintenance without affecting the other.
Subdomains in Shared Hosting
If you purchase a shared hosting package through our company, you're going to be able to create subdomains with ease using your Hepsia website hosting CP. We've decided not to limit their number, so even if you host just one domain name in the account, you will be able to create as many subdomains as you wish and have a different website for each and every one of them. During the creation of a subdomain, you'll be able to choose the folder inside the account that it'll open, create personalized error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions and error logs, choose a server shared IP address or a dedicated one if you have such, plus much more. All hosted domains and the subdomains you create for them are going to be conveniently listed in alphabetical order in one location and you are going to be able to access many functions for every single one of them through right-click context menus - records, files, etc.
Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our Linux semi-dedicated plans haven't got a restriction for the amount of subdomains that you can create. Adding a new subdomain inside the account takes only a few clicks in the Hepsia hosting CP and in the process you can choose the folder the subdomain is going to access if it will be different from the default one, create tailor-made error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions if you need them or set a dedicated IP address instead of the shared server one in case you have added such an upgrade to your semi-dedicated account. Once the subdomain is set up, you can access logs and visitor stats or you can quickly jump to the website files for it in the File Manager area using instant access buttons. All subdomains that you have inside the account will be conveniently listed under their root domain, so you will be able to find and control any of them easily.
